Omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids, commonly found in fish oil supplements, are beneficial for cats’ skin, coat, and joint health. They have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce allergies, dry skin, and joint inflammation. These are excellent cat arthritis supplements.
Cats can also experience digestive upset, especially if they have eaten anything unusual or when trying new foods. To help with that or cat constipation symptoms, you can give probiotic supplements that contain beneficial bacteria to support a healthy digestive system. They can help maintain a balanced gut flora, improve nutrient absorption, and alleviate gastrointestinal issues.
Cats have a unique and high requirement for taurine, an amino acid found in animal-based proteins. VCA says that since cats are unable to synthesize taurine on their own, they must get it through their diet and supplements. Taurine is critical to heart, vision and digestive health, so having a little extra taurine added to your cat’s daily intake is always beneficial.
Cat joint supplements
Just like dogs and humans, cats can develop joint conditions and often go out of their way to mask symptoms. Ingredients like glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) are commonly used in cat joint supplements and cat arthritis supplements to support joint health. They can reduce inflammation, improve joint mobility, and alleviate pain associated with arthritis or aging. These are great senior cat supplements as they often suffer from joint problems.
